The second overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, Zach Wilson is an aggressive quarterback who can also run with the ball and extend plays outside of the pocket. A little undersized, and the product of one good season at BYU, Wilson is going to have to prove he can handle much more complex defenses than he saw in college, behind an offensive line which was atrocious last season. Hopefully, the Jets did enough to that last situation, as with the weapons they have arrayed for their rookie quarterback, Wilson could actually perform well from an NFL standpoint. It's a harder sell for fantasy, as he is unproven, playing for an unproven head coach in an unproven offense. Wilson has upside, but is likely someone you only reach for late or off the waiver wire, until he proves he can handle everything on his plate.
